A Gourmet Demonstration Evening: Galton Blackiston

Wednesday 13th February, 7pm, Fram Theatre

ChefWith FramSoc’s ever popular SupperSoc evening arriving later in the term, we felt we should whet members’ appetites with a little a cookery demonstration evening given by nationally acclaimed Norfolk chef, Galton Blackiston. The theme for his demonstration will be Easy Entertaining. In 1979 a young Galton, a cash strapped high-school student, set up a stall on Rye market selling his own cakes, biscuits and preserves. So successful was this venture that he abandoned his plans to become a professional cricketer and decided to become a chef. This proved to be a seriously clever decision for someone who has gone on to become East Anglian Chef of the Year, the UK Craft Guild of Chefs, Chef of the Year and latterly a fellow of the same organisation. With his wife Tracy he now runs the award winning country hotel Morston Hall in Norfolk, which has proudly held a Michelin star since 1998. Galton is the author of three hugely successful cookery books and is a member of the Guild of Food Writers. He has also made numerous appearances on television where he is quick to advocate the glorious quality of local Norfolk produce. We hope to run a little raffle during the evening and each winner will be able to take away one of the courses prepared and cooked by Galton during the evening’s demonstration.
